Hill leads balanced attack as Pacers top Suns
Indianapolis, IN (Sports Network) - George Hill scored 22 points and the Indiana Pacers ran their winning streak to a season-high four games with a 97-91 decision over the Phoenix Suns at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
Hill went 9-of-13 from the field to lead five Indiana players in double figures, and the Pacers bounced back after squandering a 16-point third- quarter advantage to record their fourth consecutive victory at home as well.
David West netted eight of his 14 points in the fourth quarter to help Indiana prevail, while Paul George added 15 points and Roy Hibbert pulled down a game- high 14 rebounds in the triumph.
Sebastian Telfair, starting in place of an injured Goran Dragic, registered a season-best 19 points -- 13 of which came after halftime -- to spur Phoenix's near-comeback. The Suns ultimately came up short, however, and were dealt their fourth straight defeat and seventh road setback in a row.
Marcin Gortat finished with 15 points and 10 rebounds in a losing cause.
